Man sets fire to bus to “express discontent”

Arson was blamed for a bus fire that killed 17 people in the northwestern Chinese city of Yinchuan last week.

The local procuratorate says the suspected arsonist set fire to the bus to express discontent.

The man, Ma Yongping, was detained hours after the incident occurred last Tuesday.

The procuratorate says Ma is suspected of committing the crime after he failed to resolve a financial dispute with a construction contractor.
